Competitive Arm Wrestling 
Modified By Pjohnson  on 6/11/2011 11:48:28 PM)
The sport of Arm Wrestling is becoming more and more advanced. There is word that it will enter the Olympics soon. I am very avid in my sport and I seek an edge in my performance, so I naturally go to Verkhoshansky.

I have researched the texts throroughly. Supertraining and Special Strength Training Coaches Manual.

Im having difficulty developing a workout scheme most sutable for my sport, and specifically the main exercises to apply to them. Most sports covered in the texts are leg-dominant. I am doing many squat variations with the Shock Method, however.

Also, there are many small muscles required to have stability strength. At a tournament, explosive power is need over many bouts. But if one match lasts long, the athlete with more endurance can overcome.

Your insights would be greatly appreciated. I thank you in advance for your time.

Re: Competitive Arm Wrestling 
This is a nice topic. Let me suggest some plan.

Upper Body Dominant Block Training would contain separate training blocks for the special qualities of the sport.

BLOCK A: Maximum Strength (isometric strength)
BLOCK B: Speed Strength
BLOCK C: Strength-endurance.

BLOCK E: Top-Roll
BLOCK F: Press


So ,my weekly design for the sport would be:

DAY 1: A + D + E
DAY 2: B + E + F
DAY 3: C + D + F
DAY 4: A + D + E
DAY 5: B + E + F
DAY 6: C + D + F
DAY 7: rest
